About our Funders

Primary funding for this project has come from the Quadrature Climate Foundation. Funding was also provided by ClimateWorks and in part by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation through the Finance Hub, which was created to advance sustainable finance.

We also wish to acknowledge the Wells Fargo Foundation, which provided generous support for Capital for Climate’s early development.
